I was looking for a truck for work when I decided to get a CARFAX Report. I live in Connecticut and I was looking at a truck in Florida, and I just wanted to be sure I knew about any problems before I purchased the vehicle from that distance. I couldn’t get a straight answer about the mileage on the vehicle, and I wanted to play it safe. I was told that the odometer only had 5 digits, and read 49,000, so it could have been 149,000. The CARFAX Report showed that the truck had 249,000 miles on it, had been in a rear-end accident, and had been bought and sold many times without many service records. The CARFAX Report was money well spent.
